Are shots safe?
Shots are very safe, but they are not perfect. Like any other medicine they can occasionally cause reactions. Usually these are mild, like a sore arm or a slight fever. Serious reactions are rare, but they can happen. Your doctor or nurse can discuss the risks with you before your child gets his/her shots. The important thing to remember is that getting the diseases is much more dangerous than getting the shots.
Are seasonal flu shots available?
The flu season has begun! It can start in October and end as late as March. The experts at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine each year. Flu vaccine is available for children 6 months through 18 years at all of the Franklin County Public Health Childhood Immunization clinics. Parents of children from birth through 4 years of age may also receive a flu vaccine at these clinics. The Ohio Department of Health’s Vaccine for Children Program provides the pediatric and adult flu vaccine for those who qualify.
Any adult who financially qualifies may receive a free flu vaccine provided by the Franklin County Commissioners. For more information www.vaccine4me.com.
